What a heartbreaker! CM Punk’s triceps injury has dashed his hopes of headlining WrestleMania 40 and has left him sidelined for what could be quite a while.
He broke the sad news on WWE Raw,
Not only has this injury crushed his WrestleMania dreams, but it’s raised an even more pressing question: Will Punk ever headline The Showcase of the Immortals?
It’s a tricky one.
Punk’s Injury Woes
It’s been quite the rough patch for Punk in the injury department lately.
First, he suffered a fractured foot that required “three plates and 16 screws” after performing a stage dive off the entrance ramp during a June 2022 episode of AEW Dynamite.
That was bad enough, but then he tore his left triceps during an All Out clash with Jon Moxley in September 2022. Now, during his first WWE match back, he’s gone and torn his right triceps. Poor guy!
In his address to the fans on Monday night, Punk admitted he’s never believed in luck, but you can’t blame him for feeling it isn’t on his side right now. Will all this misfortune cost him the dream of headlining wrestling’s biggest event?
Would you risk it?
It’s not just about the injuries, though. Putting so much time and effort into a storyline that may not pan out is a risky business, and it makes sense why WWE might think twice when it comes to letting Punk take center stage.
But at the end of the day, it’ll be the fans who have the final say about whether Punk gets a shot at WrestleMania glory.
The Real People’s Champion
For all his trials and tribulations, CM Punk is still a star.
